Bexleyheath Bus Garage

The Broadway c1960, Bexleyheath
Enlarge photo |  More about this photo

I lived opposite the bus garage for many years (from 1949), my mum worked in the newsagents in the parade of shops (next to the garage) then at Lewis sweet shop at the clock-tower. My dad was a coach driver for Margo's, Bexleyheath, for as long as I can remember. I had a Saturday job at Barret's the shoe shop in the Broadway, we would go to the Silver Lounge for lunch and walk back eating our ice cream which they used to dip in hot chocolate for us. I can taste it now. Saturday night we would go to the Inferno at Welling or The Black Cat Club next to Woolwich Arsenal Station. I have loads of wonderful memories of my childhood in Bexleyheath and I would not swap them for the world.
